im not sure what it is about the bars here but it seems like the owners are more willing to hire these small guys for door jobs then a bigger guy like me. im just wondering if you had any advice for getting a bouncer job. im just not understanding why these college kids are getting jobs over townie locals


As its always gone with bouncer jobs, being "big" doesn't make you a better worker. It certainly helps in the times when shit is hitting the fan, but the percent that happens is extremely small. Fights happen and a half dozen average sized guys can break it up as effectively as two big guys, generally.

My general opinion is that I'd rather have a guy with a good head on his shoulders than a big guy whos only advantage is that he can bust some heads should the opportunity arise. A smart door guy is better than a big door guy. But I'll be honest, having a few giants on your staff always makes me breath a little easier when we find ourselves squaring off against a few members of the O line on the sidewalk.

Another aspect is that college kids bring their college friends into bars. It's always been like that, and always will be. Owners like that because a lot of college kids are going to school on mom and dads dime, and more often than that they'll have some extra money from mom and dad to blow on the bars downtown. College kids = $$$. See if you can make the connection here.

Unfortunately, locals are generally viewed as negative, and to hire a few locals for your bar usually means more locals inside the bar, which means less college kids, which equals less money.

You get the picture.

Don't blame the messanger, this has simply been my experience over the years. Sorry man.

Who gives a shit how big the door guy is, this is a college town with mostly college kids at the bar, not a bunch of roided out tools like in atlanta, although the influx of similar douchebags from gwinnett county is getting worse
